Kenny Chesney: Summer In 3d (2010)

"The numbers -- 35 million records sold; 19 number-one hits; more than one million tickets sold in each of the last eight summers -- are as staggeringly impressive, as remarkable, as the man behind them is not." ‐ Boston Globe

Sorority Row (2009)

"The "scary'' moments are of the sneak-up-on-you-from-behind variety, but there's little suspense." ‐ Boston Globe

Hatchet (2006)

"It's just not that scary (even the gory sequences are predictable and boring). And it certainly isn't clever or funny." ‐ Boston Globe

Redline (2007)

"Everything you'd expect it to be, and yet so much less: less character development, less believability, and most unforgivably, less escapist entertainment." ‐ Boston Globe

Satin Rouge (2002)

"As improbable as this premise may seem, Abbass's understated, shining performance offers us the sense that on some elemental level, Lilia deeply wants to break free of her old life." ‐ Boston Globe

Cuba Feliz (2002)

"A grittily beautiful film that looks, sounds, and feels more like an extended, open-ended poem than a traditionally structured story." ‐ Boston Globe

Ram Dass: Fierce Grace (2001)

"Parts of the film feel a bit too much like an infomercial for Ram Dass's latest book aimed at the boomer demographic. But mostly it's a work that, with humor, warmth, and intelligence, captures a life interestingly lived." ‐ Boston Globe

The Cherry Orchard (2000)

"Cacoyannis is perhaps too effective in creating an atmosphere of dust-caked stagnation and labored gentility." ‐ Boston Globe

Hell House (2002)

"A candid and often fascinating documentary about a Pentecostal church in Dallas that assembles an elaborate haunted house each year to scare teenagers into attending services." ‐ Boston Globe

The Mystic Masseur (2001)

"It starts slowly, has few dramatic peaks and sketchy character development, and meanders without momentum." ‐ Boston Globe

Dogtown and Z-Boys (2001)

Deuces Wild (2002)

"It's tough to tell which is in more abundant supply in this woefully hackneyed movie, directed by Scott Kalvert, about street gangs and turf wars in 1958 Brooklyn -- stale cliches, gratuitous violence, or empty machismo." ‐ Boston Globe

Son of the Bride (2002)

"Jose Campanella delivers a loosely autobiographical story brushed with sentimentality but brimming with gentle humor, bittersweet pathos, and lyric moments that linger like snapshots of memory." ‐ Boston Globe

Slackers (2002)

A Walk to Remember (2002)

"In their zeal to create a character who embodies a wholesome, positive adolescent ideal, the filmmakers have invented an 18-year-old girl with no self-doubt, no emotional weakness, no character flaws, and a crystal-clear complexion." ‐ Boston Globe

Not Another Teen Movie (2001)

"A clever satire that's layered like a breakfast club sandwich with sly in-jokes, sight gags, gross-out scenes, and, of course, requisite bathroom humor." ‐ Boston Globe

Thirteen Ghosts (13 Ghosts) (2001)

"Little did Elizabeth know that after starring in the spoof Scary Movie, she'd soon find herself in another parody of bad horror films -- one that doesn't know it is one." ‐ Boston Globe

Two Can Play That Game (2001)

"Offers for most of its length a wickedly funny romp that takes witty aim at traditional gender roles and stereotypes." ‐ Boston Globe
